    Digihitch is back up

    I found a few good things on there but take the advice people give on there with a grain of salt. I've seen more than one "experienced hitchhiker" on there give advice that is untrue

    We need more appalachian old-time musicians!

    Suggsted Books on Simple Living

    Sounds good, I'd like to read what you write about it if you don't mind. I read it in one sitting, partly because I was doing a lot of sitting, mostly because it was really good.

    Tattooed pigs - nice work, but totally fucked!

    Most hardcore pigs ever. Seriously though, their gate is wierd as shit. I've heard that people learning to tattoo use pig's skin to practice, can anyone verify that? I mean like.. removed from the pig, not like the above link.

    Squats in Eugene?

    I would say no to Jefferson park, it's got lots of homebums and heroin. The two H's of Eugene. Also Russ T maybe should keep that info to PM or something as it is not really a squat and may not be good for all of the internets to show up looking for a place to crash. Lots of scumfucks come...

    Why being a 'drunk punk' and an 'anarchist' don't actually go together...

    Do people drink because they don't care or do they not care because they drink? The world may never know, because everyone is too drunk to care. "but fuck "anarchists" who aren't doing any positive work whatsoever in any communities, just getting drunk, travelling, and talking shit...

    Why being a 'drunk punk' and an 'anarchist' don't actually go together...

    I don't think that disagreeing with someone is oppressive. So stop trying to oppress me by saying the things I'm saying are oppressive! The drunk natives in AZ are depressing as hell. I think at this point the US government would rather have the remaining native population not as fucked so that...

    Why being a 'drunk punk' and an 'anarchist' don't actually go together...

    Cheap entertainment, fun with friends. Helps to go to sleep in the bushes. I think that your 'government wants anarchists to get drunk so that they won't topple our regime' argument is giving anarchists too much credit. If it was big enough of a deal for the feds to make a plan to deal with...

    Hitchhiking across the Canada/US border

    They asked me for a bank account statement, then said that they couldn't tell from my ATM receipt that it was my account. And asked us a million questions like "how did you find out about our public transportation system?" It took about 7 hours for us to get across the border (compounded by a...

    10 most overrated "rock" bands of all time ?

    I like a few of the bands you put up there (the dead & the doors), but I have to say that it was really awesome to see that you put the Beatles as #1. Glad to see someone else thinks they are overrated!

    Enviornmental/Conservation Projects

    I am hoping here to get some discussion going on environmentally oriented projects that are going on around the country. I'm sure we all realize how horribly we have fucked up many of our remaining natural areas. It's depressing to me seeing how many people realize this but how few of them are...

    How To Say Goodbye?

    They can only stop you if you let them, especially if you are 18. I warmed my parents up eventually to the idea that you could still hitch-hike without being murdered, which was a hard sell since my mother had a -very- sketchy experience hitch-hiking in the 70s. My dad as well took a cross...

    Very cool shots. Makes my feet itch. Great shots of bagby and other spots in Oregon. I used to use blogspot but got frusterated. Wordpress seems complicated to set up, as a non-techie person. Am I missing something about it? Anyone have a link to a good tutorial or willing to explain it?

    How to get over a broken heart.

    Yeah, you made that point with the first post. Then the second one came and I was like "damn, Wider is really after this one". Then the third post came and it just seemed like overkill. You made your point, no need to use her as a punching bag because you think it's stupid that she would ask for...

    How to get over a broken heart.

    Should I bring my iPhone?

    A friend and I on a long trip took his iTouch (like an iPhone without the phone part). It was really handy because, although it doesn't have phone service, you can just use skype to call anywhere in the world for free once you get internet service. It had a transit system application so we could...

    Accessing the situation: My options

    1. Sounds fucking rad, and like an awesome deal. The insurance you could just pay all at once if you can swing it. Like, pay 600-700 bucks for 6 months of insurance up front then when your six months is up, stop driving it for a while. That way you don't have to always have a job to support your...

    How to get over a broken heart.

    Don't worry about the loving again part until you deal with the being happy on your own part. My 2 cents.

    How to get over a broken heart.

    I would say take care of yourself by eating well, sleeping enough and exercising. The alcohol is tempting but it doesn't work, just delays dealing with the problem, and it can become a problem in itself. And no one likes a sobbing self-pitying drunk. It's going to suck but it will suck less if...

    Fundraising Ideas

    You know, people (especially younger ones) eat up cool slogans/designs involving their city's name. If you made a cool design or funny saying with your city's name on it and screenprinted some T-shirts I bet you could get people to buy them for a couple bucks profit. My advice here is sell them...
